Sero-epidemiology of toxoplasmosis in Gezira, Sudan

Sero-epidemiology of toxoplasmosis in Gezira, Sudan

Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 94(5): 329-332

386 blood samples from residents of Gezira Province, Sudan were tested by a latex agglutination test for toxoplasmosis. 41.7% of the sample were found positive with antibody titres of .gtoreq.1/64. Females aged 20-49 years had a significantly higher prevalence rate that males of the same age. No correlation was found between seropositivity and history of contact with domestic cats or between seropositivity and rural versis urban residence. The findings of this study and the known food habits of the study population suggest ingestion of Toxoplasma cysts in meat to be the main mode of transmission of the disease.
